2019-2020 Employee Handbook

Hurricanes

A hurricane watch indicates that a hurricane has formed. Normally this announcement is made to allow at least 24 hours before the hurricane strikes. During this time, all preparations to secure property and buildings and gather emergency supplies should be in motion. Weather permitting, employees and students should be allowed to return home or to shelter with their families. A hurricane warning is announced within 12 hours before the hurricane strikes. The procedures for hurricane preparation are coordinated through the vice president of Administration and Finance.
